Getting in. Two-part programme dedicated to the cinematic work of Shelly Silver

sintesi del comunicato stampa

This two-part programme is dedicated to the cinematic work of American artist and filmmaker Shelly Silver. Since the early 1990s, Silver's work has commented on how we construct personal relationships within society, intertwining documentary and fictions in a signature style that recalibrates filmic conventions, explores the construction of character and considers the delicate relationship between fantasy and physical location. The first event looks at the role of language in Silver's films, then the second event takes Silver's short film getting in as a point of departure to investigate real estate as a phenomenon in art and architecture. This programme of film and video works collapses the notion of the sales pitch with the reality of living in and with architecture and stages a collision between the rarely questioned phenomena of desire, realism and real estate. The 'real' is identified here as the concept, which anchors art and architecture in the reality of life now, viewing art as a transitory that can only ever be perceived within a specific time, location, taste and value system. The works in the selection present architecture through the lens of the realtor as an object to be desired, worn through patina and shaped by need, function and a lingering obsession. Shelly Silver was born in 1957 in Brooklyn, New York. She received a BA (Phi Beta Kappa) in History and a BFA in Mixed Media from Cornell University. Silver subsequently attended the Whitney Museum of American Art Independent Study Programme. he has exhibited works throughout the USA, Europe and Asia at venues such as MoMA, NYC; MoCA, LA; Pompidou Centre, Paris; The Kyoto Museum, Japan; ICA, London; London Film Festival; and Singapore Film Festival. Sliver has won awards, fellowships and grants at festivals and institutions worldwide. She currently lives in New York where she is an associate professor in Visual Arts, School of the Arts, Columbia University. Admission: 5/3 pounds.
